Sybarite: 62 people (30 men, 32 women) were confronted with a confederate wearing a large leg brace, who dropped a stack of magazines and feigned difficulty retrieving them.They were probably Yankees.
lemurs: The difference between a crazy guy yammering to himself at the bus stop and social acceptability is a Bluetooth earpiece.
CruJones: No, talking loudly on your phone makes you an asshole
gopher321: Or just a teenage girl./swear some of them have their phones surgically grafted to their ears
CruJones: No, talking loudly on your phone makes you an asshole, simply using it is fine. If you talk at a normal volume it's no worse than someone talking to a friend.
bdub77: lemurs: The difference between a crazy guy yammering to himself at the bus stop and social acceptability is a Bluetooth earpiece.People on those earpieces piss me off more than cell phones, especially when you're like inside a grocery store and the person is talking to you and you're like 'huh? What?' and then they turn sideways and they've got that f*cking earpiece on. It's like they were taken over by those f*cking ear zombie slugs from Star Trek or something.
Harry Freakstorm: People who have the Bluetooth headset who look at you while talking are the real douchies.Why do I want to know what the vet said about your cat's rash? Oh.... I see.
Elemental79: why care?
vharshyde: anti-progress types in this thread...
rev. dave: I talk on the phone while in the grocery store, but always get off the phone when I get in line to pay.
vharshyde: Oh how cute, a bunch of "GIT OFF MAH LAWN" anti-progress types in this thread...
lewismarktwo: I was in a fairly posh hotel retrieving a package from services when some asshole starts yelling and cursing incessantly into his phone to some bank or credit card rep about needing access to his money. He decided to pony up to the front desk for this as to disturb everyone in the lobby. The employees were all red faced and glancing down at their shoes, clearly unable to tell the customer he was not right.After I signed for my package I tapped him on the shoulder and asked him to take his conversation to the bathroom not 20 feet away for the benefit of the other guests and employees. He was outraged of course and told me to mind my own farking business. I then proceeded to whip my cell phone out and began to mock him in a similarly loud fashion, right into his ear. "Hey look at me! I'm so farking important I think everyone needs to hear one half of this customer service call in the lobby of this 5 star hotel! I may be yelling at you but I'm really just angry about my small penis! My mother never loved me! " etc.He told the bank rep some asshole was making too much noise to talk and that he would call him right back and flees. Smiles on all the hotel employees faces, and I got a free gift basket complete with intoxicants later that day./csb
MelGoesOnTour: rev. dave: I talk on the phone while in the grocery store, but always get off the phone when I get in line to pay.Out of curiosity, why would you have a need to be on the phone while grocery shopping? For that matter, when did phones become so absolutely necessary during all times of the day? I mean, it's not like people carried bags of quarters to use on pay-phones back in the day.
Buttknuckle: You are not that important. Put the f*cking phone down.
meanmutton: Buttknuckle: You are not that important. Put the f*cking phone down.What does being important have to do with talking to people? Personally, I like people and frequently talk with them. Why that should be restricted to important people is beyond me.
Matthew Keene: Harry Freakstorm: People who have the Bluetooth headset who look at you while talking are the real douchies.Why do I want to know what the vet said about your cat's rash? Oh.... I see.It also makes it harder to spot the skitzo nuts having conversations with themselves.
